BEST BANK: Ceska Sporitelna
BEST M&A HOUSE: Merrill Lynch

There is always little to split the big three of CSOB, Ceska Sporitelna and Komercni Bank for the best bank in the Czech Republic award. This year, Ceska Sporitelna claims it, thanks to its impressive net interest revenue of $755 million, higher than that of its larger competitor, CSOB. The bank also showed an impressive return on equity of 21.7%.

ABN Amro takes the award for best debt house thanks to its role as one of three bookrunners on the sole Eurobond from the country – a €1 billion transaction for the sovereign that was its first 15-year benchmark – as well as its respectable fifth place in the loans league tables. It was a mandated lead arranger on three loans during the 12-month period, including a facility for Home Credit Finance bank, giving it a market share of 7.4%.
